BCom (Hons) at the Shri Ram College for Commerce (SRCC) is 0.5% higher than last time at 96.5%. It is for candidates who have three accounts papers with mathematics. For the highly sought Economics (Hons), the cut-off is 96.75% for commerce students — an increase of 1.5%.
“The cut-offs are analytical and not guesswork,” said PC Jain, principal, SRCC.
Last year, SRCC had left students rattled with a BCom (Hons) cut-off of 100% even though it applied only to students who hadn't studied any commerce subject. In science, cut-offs for physics, mathematics and chemistry have left eyebrows raised. The highest is 97% for Physics (Hons) at Hindu College - up by 0.33% than last year. Kirori Mal College raised its Physics (Hons) cut-off by 2.66% to 94.66%.
Chemistry (Hons) at Ramjas College is 95.3%, a leap of 10.5%. The biggest jump in the science stream is 15% in BSc Physical Sciences - from 75% to 90%.
"The cut-offs are based on careful deliberation and analysis," said Rajendra Prasad, principal, Ramjas College.
Those interested in humanities got a breather, with the cut-offs largely the same as last year or seeing a marginal increase. An exception is 99% for History (Hons) at Hindu for those who haven't studied any arts subject.
